To support good causes, one nautical mile at a time.
The Reina Group MD, Ricky Reina is undertaking a extraordinary challenge to raise money for the Atlantic Avengers Trust and following in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus.
In 1493 Christopher Columbus sailed from Cadiz on his second voyage to Antigua, with 17 ships and 1200 men. The Atlantic Avengers, are following this route leaving on 17th November 2018.
One rowing boat, 3800 nautical miles, and just 2 extraordinary men
Ricky and John already hold the record for the World’s Indoor longest continual row, so the obvious choice was to tackle the Columbus Route next. They leave November 2018 from Cadiz to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua, arriving in February 2019, after 3 months at sea.
“We are trying to achieve something amazing and to make a real difference in the lives of young people less fortunate. We are challenging ourselves in a way that is far greater than ever before, rowing across the world’s second largest ocean”. Ricky Reina.
“Obviously, to achieve something so challenging and to raise such a large target we need the support and generosity of so many people”. John Wilson.
Our cause is simple, fuelled by a real desire to make a difference in the lives of young people. “We are trying to achieve something amazing and to make a real difference in the lives of people less fortunate.
Throughout our lives we have been helped, mentored and supported by many people, it’s time for us to give back. We have chosen a charity close to our hearts and minds, all who provide, support, inspiration and a sense of community to a great many deserving young people. Everybody deserves a helping hand sometimes and who better than a super hero or two?
